or smaller things? >> the first thing i would actually like to see in congress is comprehensive immigration reform. i mean, if you look at what the senate did, there is a path there that a lot of people compromised on to create a path to citizenship plus ways of making sure that we take people out of the shadows, we grow our economy, and we make sure our borders are secure. and so first and foremost, the house of representatives needs to focus on that. and i was part of the fast for families yesterday. i have been arrested on the whole process of trying to get to immigration reform and whatnot. in terms of education, this is an issue. pre-k is an issue about showing whether results actually really matter and what the research actually really matters or whether the congress lives in an evidence-free zone. we have seen pre-k actually works to help level the playing field. the president has put a bill out there. the house of representatives actually have a bipartisan bill, that aligns in the house of representatives and the senate, the miller-harkin bill, that has two republicans from new york

because it's excluding the undocumented immigrant and it's excluding the unborn baby, so we begin to bristle at that. and secondly we said, and wait a minute, we who are pretty -- we catholics who are kind of among the pros when it comes to providing health care do it because of our religious conviction and because of the dictates of our conscience and now we're being asked to violate some of those. so that's when we began to worry and drawback and say mr. president, please, you're really kind of -- you're really kind of pushing aside some of your greatest supporters here. >> congressman, as a catholic do you agree with that? the cardinal went on to say they have been on the front end of this, i think he threw out 1919, trying to get our government to take up what it means to have health care in this country. but do you think that catholic supporters are going to hear the cardinal there and say, you know what, maybe i don't think so highly of obama care. >> i just hope that all supporters of all faiths listen to the pope. i think he's the most terrific voice that i've heard in my

undocumented immigrants than any president previous president in the history of the united states. so there are some things that the president has done to really annoy the latino voter. now, i have to add and caution people who might say this ii a great chance now for the republicans. the way the republicans can torpedo this chance among hispanic social security to keep a point of view when it comes to immigration reform. i think if republicans are smart now, they will seize this obvious decline in popularity, this reflex approval of the president among latinos and say, as bill o'reilly has said, as sean hannity has said, let's be more open minded and more modern and let's be more reform oriented when it comes to immigration. we can get this vital voting block on our corner. >> who is doing that right now? >> who on the republican side? >> who in your mind? >> there are some voices. mostly comment tears. i have to say, rather than elected officials. you hear people like cantor, for instance, these are guys -- paul ryan, these are guys that could very easily influence the gop away from

comprehensive immigration reform will. we are very disappointed on this side of the aisle that the senate bill has not been put on the floor. our bill or one of the four bills out of committee. it was supported by the republican party and the judiciary committee. they have not been brought to the floor. we believe immigration reform is a critically important action for the congress to take. we hope anyone of those options would be brought to the table. the senate has passed in a bipartisan way the end of discrimination in employment. we talk about jobs. we talk about economic opportunity. passed that bill. that is not on the agenda either. i noticed we do have an extension bill that has been specifically reference. we will get to a debate on that next week. we have a suspension bill we have been urging that is reported out of committee that passed by 350 votes. it simply says we ought to have a plan, and that will be to extend manufacturing, grow profits, gross salaries for individuals -- gross salaries -- grow salaries for individuals. and taxnt assistance extenders had been reference. hopefu

the congress does last until 2014. there is still a possibility of immigration reform. but right now, december 2013, tamron, this congress doesn't have anything to show for it other than resolving a government shutdown that lasted 16 days to be able to extend the nation's borrowing limit to just a couple of months. outside of that it doesn't have much to show for it. all of the work getting done, this congress really hasn't been able to tie its shoe laces. >> looking forward to the next year, it seems it's dreadful in that we're not seeing a change in tone of particularly from republicans on some of the things that many people thought we would see, particularly immigration reform. >> that's right, tamron, the one thing we'll look for is that change is possible. the tone that you have right now can be very different two months later. there are all of these events and circumstances that can change things. there are people hoping as bad as 2013 has been for all of the political players, 2014 is a better year. >> let's hope so. thank you very much. we appreciate it, mark. >> now to colorado where
